Creative England have announced a programme of specialist support for businesses working in, or looking to work in the film or TV profession or businesses involved in the supply chain to the media sector.  

ProConnect is fully funded by the ERDF programme, which makes it free for businesses to attend its networking events, workshops and one to ones. Participants are able to choose the combination of events that suit them, and timings are designed with flexibility in mind.  

The aim of the initiative is to support smaller businesses (with fewer than 250 employees) by providing the networking opportunities, mentoring and information that they need to become a success in the sector.

Currently ProConnect is being run out of Manchester and Hertfordshire to support businesses in these areas. Grants of up to £5,000 are also available to eligible businesses, depending on the support that they need.
